Rotary Club of Milwaukee recently hosted a conversation on racial equality where rotary member Dr. Eve Hall, Milwaukee Urban League president, talked about areas of equity reparation. "What's hard about this is, when we look at every aspect of life, there is a gap, and it is also related to policy," Dr. Hall said. In approaching policy and social changes, Dr. Hall noted that, although the urgency of now is at odds with thoughtful future strategy, everything has a timeframe like the 200 days for Milwaukee's housing changes or the year long wait for segregation to end on buses. "I think just recognizing the fact that we got some work to do, and the reparations I think have to come in terms of policy, law and opportunity changes."
